My phone ran away from home a couple months ago and have been using a backup for a while. Losing a phone always hurts more when you have pictures you hadn’t saved to the computer yet.
I’ve written before about the instant-upload feature on Google+. Last time I had a phone incident, I was able to view my pictures in Google+ still because they were automatically uploaded to a private album whenever I took them. It was nice to have them, but they weren’t full resolution. Not anymore!!
Setting up my new phone last week, I noticed there is an option to turn on full-resolution instant-uploads to Google+. Whaaaa? I am SO excited about this because I now have a full backup in case anything happens to my phone. Theoretically, I can also organize the pictures onto my hard drive without ever having to plug the phone into my computer!
Read instructions on how to turn on full-resolution instant-upload here. There are some storage limits, so I’ll have to make sure and go online and delete ones I don’t want.
